Comments All My Road Before Me: The Diary of C. S. Lewis, 1922-1927

  1. A fascinating read for any C.S Lewis enthusiast This compilation of journal entries provides valuable insight into Lewis s life and studies in his early 20s before becoming a Christian, while also demonstrating how he struggled with many of the very same issues 20 somethings struggle with today monetary problems, job searching, managing relationships, etc These journal entries are refreshing to read, for while they do portray Lewis s genius and incredible work ethic, they also show how we was st [...]


  2. These diary entries made fascinating reading for me Written before C.S Lewis came to faith as a Christian, they shed light on the Christian who is to be in Lewis A non Lewis ite probably would find them tedious and a bit odd, but I thoroughly enjoyed them I also read the diary entries of Lewis brother, Warnie, from the book Brothers and Friends Reading about the same event from both brother s differing perspective was really enjoyable At the back of the diary are prose sketches of men that Lewis [...]


  3. C.S Lewis always aimed to write enjoyable reading, and of course often succeeded Certainly, this diary is enjoyable there are no tedious portions to it that I can think of It is also instructive One thing you will learn from it is how to lead the scholarly life, because that s what he chronicles In fact, his account includes a portion of his life when he was under enormous strain at home with daily life, moving, being poor, having a madman to care for for two weeks and to cap that all off, diffi [...]


  4. These are C S Lewis diaries from 1922 1927 Nothing tremendously exciting here, just the slow steady ruminations of one of the most brilliant minds of the 20th century in it s youth C S Lewis was an agnostic during these years, living in rural Oxford in a very strange domestic situation His diaries are full of the books he is reading and sometimes writing , drinks in pubs with friends and family, his dreams, arguments and conversations with friends like Owen Barfield, Arthur Greaves, and his brot [...]


  5. This is a wonderful insight into the young mind of one of the popular Christian authors before he became a believer The brilliant mind of C.S Lewis, the university student, is laid before the reader as the author struggles through the ups and downs of juggling his studies and caring for a fallen comrade s family simultaneously The diary showcases his thought processes and glimpses into his philosophies, and how they began to be radically changed in the beginning of 1927, when he questions many [...]


  6. While I recommend this diary of five years early in the adulthood of C.S Lewis, it should be read under two preconditions 1 the reader has already read much of Lewis works, especially those dealing with Christian apologetics, philosophy, and literature 2 read this book by the index, reading those passages that relate to subjects and people one is interested in This diary is a good insight into the mind of the young Lewis, the atheistic and somewhat embittered soldier from the First World War As [...]


  7. Perfect for any fan of Lewis the man likely to be found tedious by those interested primarily in his thought and or Christian works.It was long at times, but I loved seeing the way he drank in his world at such a young age Also fun to see the early seeds of what would be his writings on joy and myth 4.5 stars



  8. In order to enjoy this book, one has to possess two things 1 a love for C S Lewis, and 2 at least a working knowledge of the events of Lewis s life If one is not already a fan of Lewis or hasn t read any biographies about him or his autobiography in Surprised by Joy , then his diary will likely come off as extremely boring Aside from the fate of John Askins the Doc , there aren t many events recorded in the diary that would make a big impact on the rest of his life and career most of those event [...]


  9. Fascinating for the Lewis enthusiast but not as interesting as his collected letters In his diary Lewis largely focuses on things he does e.g Dined with Barfield, Read Plato, etc rather than expressing his thoughts His letters, on the other hand, emphasize his thoughts.




  10. About as entertaining as a diary can be Not anyone s favorite kind ofreading, I m sure What a menagerie he lived in


  11. It is worth reading to just see ALL the books that Lewis read in those 5 years, enough for any one else s lifetime Amazing You can see so many things start to coalesce in his mind.


  12. The packaging and preliminary materials for this diary are almost apologetic about the feast of boredom and everyday humdrum details the reader is about to endure, but I found it anything but boring Lewis is an engaging presence even in these short diary entries, and you do really get a sense of the daily rhythms of life and how he functioned at the time You see him being lovely and also see him being irritable He s also quite witty This diary brings a humanity and immediacy to Lewis that you mi [...]


  13. Interesting insights into the pre Christian Lewis Somewhat slow, but only as to be expected when reading the diary of another Many witty and pithy comments and insights scattered throughout the volume If your interested in CSL and getting insight into his thinking, then it is worth the read If you want to understand his appreciation for the country side and out of doors, then this will be a worth while time spent If you are interested in his early years, his relationship with the Moores, Warnie, [...]


  14. This book is the journal, slightly edited, of C S Lewis It is an intriguing book that introduces the reader to C.S Lewis s life prior to his conversion to Christianity C.S Lewis introduces us, in a very descriptive manner, to many of the interesting scholars and other friends that he met during these years, including J.R.R Tolkien We also find many references to the Real Joy that Lewis wrote about in his autobiography Surprised by Joy Anyone who wants to seriously study Lewis s life needs to rea [...]


  15. Never intended for publication, this collected diary chronicles Lewis in his pre Christian graduate school years Only a true C.S Lewis freak would love it, but if you already own most of his work you should definitely add this to your collection It fills in the gaps of Surprised by Joy and stands as a rebuke to any would be intellectuals The volume of work this man could churn out in a day was staggering, and he still had time to take long walks and go to the pub.


  16. i love journals, and i love the chronicles of narnia c.s lewis diary is very ordinary, but kind of comforting in its ordinary ness it is helpful to read this if you are an academic he is very inspiring in his ability to have fun with friends as well as study hard it is also a nice historical document that reflects on england post WWI interesting than most history books.


  17. Interesting peer into the lifestyle of an early 20th century British academic Lewis has some insights scattered among the nearly interchangeable account of the day s events what else would a diary be Anything after the first few chapters becomes repetition and would be too monotonous for the casual, non voyeurist Lewis fan.


  18. Lewis is without a doubt one of my favorite authors His insight and wisdom have had a remarkable impact on my worldview and have than assisted me in pursuit of a wholistic theology Nonetheless, his diary is a hard and often mundane read It is redemptive in that, at times, it opens a window to view what you otherwise might have missed about Lewis.
